The Doctorally Prepared Nurse. Report of Two Conferences on the Demand for and Education of Nurses with Doctoral Degrees.
Phillips, Thomas P., Ed.
The proceedings of two conferences held by the Division of Nursing that have focused on doctoral preparation of nurses are presented in this publication. The first, the ''conference on Issues in Doctoral Education for Nurses," held in Bethesda, Maryland, on February 22, 1974, called together project directors and deans of schools of nursing that had ongoing Nurse-Scientist Programs at a time when future support for these programs was under question and careful planning for advanced education was crucial. The second, "Conference on Doctoral Manpower in Nursing," was held in Silver Spring, Maryland, on June 19-21, 1974. It addressed the issue of the requirements for doctorally prepared nurses needed in the nation, and it called on the experience and knowledge of a group of nurses familiar with academic, service, and other related settings where highly knowledgeable nurses are needed.
